    It means our MacPro's are even more overpriced.

    It means less performance, so Apple will probably not use it.

    Doesn't mean anything. These are mainstream Intel desktop parts which Apple have never used. Even if Intel drop prices on socket 1366 processors Apple won't.

    Mac Pro Processors as 1336 based Xeons,

    These chips are 1156 and are strictly desktop chips, so no chance of a Dual Socket Mac Pro with these.

    With the 32nm die shrink in future could see the i5 7xx or the mobile variant in the iMac and MBPro bringing Quad Core to the laptop and desktop market for Apple.
